The financial impact of ransomware attacks has increased the need for security operations to reduce time to detect and mitigate threats and restore connectivity. In addition, financial pressures as the world comes out of the pandemic are putting a premium on processes and tools that can quickly show positive return on investment without high staffing requirements. An effective and efficient way of achieving both of objectives is for Network Operations and Security Operations to use common tools that support insight into both performance issues and security-relevant changes and anomalies.

During this SANS WhatWorks webcast, SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore will interview Lee Chieffalo, Technical Director at VIASAT, about his experience with the business justification and deployment of Extrahop’s Reveal(X) to increase visibility into network traffic. VIASAT is a large ISP and services company that needs to protect its own networks and its customer systems from advanced attacks. The increased visibility and the higher fidelity of detection provided by Extrahop’s Reveal(X) allows VIASAT to detect and disrupt most attacks in progress.

Join SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore and Lee Chieffalo to hear details on VIASAT’s selection, deployment and experience of using Extrahop’s Reveal(X). The webcast include a discussion of lessons learned and best practices and offer the opportunity to ask questions to gain deeper insight.
